    When I got my little ceph a few months ago, I decided to heed the warning of so many others about how a leading cause of death is loving the plant to death (ok, that sounded a tad kinky but I hope that you all know to what I refer). I keep it on an east windowsill and water it when there isn't anything in the saucer and it is growing just fine. Nothing covers it and I don't fuss with it at all. I've never even repotted it, although that is probably going to have to be done soon. The room humidity is around 55 or 60% and that's about it.

    Keepin' it simple.

    yeah! thats it. I am not touching it anymore. I'll only watch and hope that the new pitcher's lid doesn't close.

    v,

    ilbasso is spot on, you can love em to death before you know it... and don't focus your methods based upon a lid opening or closing, when she is ready that will happen on its own mate,

    get some weak orchid mix and wipe the foliage down with cotton swabs every couple weeks... you will get the growth spurt youre looking for

    I guess I should leave it as it is now? I mean I understand about "let it do its thing"....but I better make sure that its right before I let it do its thing. so far..it was growing under this kind of heat for the past month. it was fine. It showed that progress as I posted in the earlier thread. I guess i might as well...let it do its thing.

    thanks,

    varun

    believe me, I know its hard but patience young one

    I like 68-72f / 60%RH /deep pot/ airy coco fiber mix/ tray watering/ biweekly feeding/ monthly trichoderma/ 18/6 photo period

    after that it is pretty much on auto-pilot
